Provenance of wine ‘100% guaranteed’ on new platform (France)
A Bordeaux wine merchant is guaranteeing the provenance of every wine it sells via its new online trading platform. Bordeaux Wine Bank is based in Bordeaux and organises provenance-guaranteed auctions with Sotheby’s. It launches its trading platform this week. The Bordeaux Wine Bank Exchange (BWB-EX) will offer only 100% provenance-guaranteed wines, with certificates of origin, delivered in tamper-proof cases, reports Decanter.
